Well Project Ranger is coming right along, thought I'd post a few pics. Here's the work list so far, nearly done. It's now running like a top and got a nice attitude adjustment.
-LOTS of power washing to get 15 years of mud off
-New fuel pump, strainer, pressure regulator
-Weld cracked roll cage
-Plastic weld lots of cracks
-Front end rebuild: Ball joints (those were fun), wheel bearings, tie rod ends
-Checked/added fluids in all diffs and trans. New air and oil filters.
-2" lift kit in front
-New front tires
-Rear view mirrors
-Front LED light bar, rear LED work lights on backlit switches
-Welded up a rear jump seat frame
-LOTS of rust wire wheeling and re-paint
Got about $4,400 in it all told, should make for a good lease ride. Was planning to repaint the fairings in a cool Desert Tan but my daughter lobbied hard to keep the purple. Decided what the hell, make my little girl happy. She loves it!
